Racial microaggressions can be uniquely harmful to their targets, and yet we often find ourselves skirting around this subset of microaggressions due to discomfort in openly discussing race, racism, and white supremacy. In this workshop we hope to foster an intellectually humble environment within which we can unpack racial microaggressions, address common barriers to intervening when a racial microaggression is inflicted, and provide tools for successfully intervening in the future.
Identify elements of systemic racism and understand it’s compounding nature, and connect how systemic racism creates a breeding ground for racial microaggressions
Identify racial microaggressions and intervene to disrupt their impact
Practice emotional self-awareness by identifying emotional barriers to intervening to disrupt a racial microaggression
